I met my new friend, Jenelle Aubade, via Facebook. Jenelle and her husband, Daniel, are fantastic lampwork artists and I have enjoyed viewing their work on Facebook and in Jenelle’s Etsy Shop, Radiant Mind. What surprised me is that they live right here in my hometown and I didn’t even know it until about a month ago! I finally got to meet them on Saturday and what a treat it was! Jenelle greeted me with a big hug, as though we were old friends. Their beads are even more awesome in “real life”, than online! How could I choose just a few?
Jenelle helped out, big-time, by giving me the bead set on the left as a gift! I was giddy! I also love the cool sand dollar bead set. I am always happy at the ocean, so these beauties make me smile. And the turquoise, lentil shaped bead is unlikely to ever make it to my shop . I think that one just might find a home on my wrist. My creative juices are flowing now. Let’s see where it takes me!
